The Belfast Photo Festival is a biennial, which is Northern Ireland&8217;s first major photographic event celebrating some of the finest national and international contemporary photography and visual culture, launching 4th – 14th August 2011.

We are now accepting entries for the Belfast Photo Festival&8217;s 2011 Open Submission Exhibition. The submission theme is left open and being keen to support all disciplines of photographic practice, we encourage entries from professionals, students and amateurs.

Alongside opportunities to gain significant exposure in both Belfast and Derry City, many of those selected to exhibit will be awarded a published book of their work, courtesy of the photo book company Blurb.
